9:32am
>> i'm -- >> oh, my god! >> [ inaudible ]. >> that's a minivan that came crashing through a jewelers in athens, georgia. reports say the driver of the van made a right-hand turn into the parking lot and crashed right through. the driver claims that something from her back seat rolled up front and jammed underneath her brake pedal. fortunately looks like the van didn't hit anybody. there were multiple angles of this crash and someone was hit. check out this angle. a 63-year-old customer sitting down in the bottom right-hand of your screen, as she's being helped by one of the employees, has no clue what's about to hit her right in the back. >> oh, my gosh! that didn't miss her at all. it hit her smack in the back. >> catapulted her about 15 feet. she was transported and released
9:33am
from the hospital. some reports say about 12 stitches to the back of her head. the window frame hit her in the back of the head if you can believe that. >> it's unbelievable she just needed stitches. that's mind blowing. there's a million ways to catch a if fish but i've never seen a way like this. how about fire? this is the northern taiwan coast. an ancient method known as fire fishing. look at this. >> what? >> see these guys out there on a boat. you see one of them kind of operating this big flame. and all that you see there on the surface, those are a certain type of fish that are attracted to the fire and the light emitted from it. you see it looks like they have almost a triangular net. in the past fishermen have used
9:34am
this it technique and speared these fish as they get close to the boat. >> it's like a magnet. turn this torch on and here come the fish. >> it looks like sparks in the water. >> yeah. >> because the light reflecting off the fish. surely this can only be done at night but it does kind of make for a beautiful spectacle. >> no kidding. >> that's kind of what it has become. there are only four boats still using this method on the taiwan coast. i got to say, fishing never looked so pretty. >> yeah. >> thanks for showing us this. >> you're welcome. two insane dash cam videos from russia. the first one, the driver is listening to the cure's "close to me" and titled "second birthday." you're about to see why. >> whoa!
9:35am
>> oh, my goodness. >> no kidding. the driver, obviously, on a wet road. the semi truck swerves into his lane sending him in the direction of two oncoming semis. >> that's a scary sight when he goes over into oncoming traffic. you see the two trucks side by sidep. good thing he was in the car he was in. >> i like to think he's in a real skinny car. if he was in a big suv. >> forget it. >> he would have ran out of room. >> notice how the two oncoming trucks the red one swerved in the direction of the other truck which you can only imagine meant they two collided with each other right behind him. insane. if in this second video, honestly all i can say is holy beep. look closely at the road up ahead. >> whoa! is. >> where the heck was that guy going? he was shot out of a cannon. >> out of nowhere this other car
9:36am
obviously driving incredibly fast, comes in cuts him off and ends up slamming into a parked car so fast that he completely relocates where the car was originally parked at. >> who drives that fast on a small road like that. >> he's definitely going way faster than anybody else on this road. >> that's a heck of a crash. you all remember the video from pam of the little animal friends that were hanging out together on her porch in unalaska alaska. >> all sorts of different ani l animals you wouldn't expect to be hanging out together. >> a fox, eagle and her cat. >> i have an eagle, and then i have the cat out here. >> more video from pam. it seems it was feast time at the fish buffet for all these eagles. >> oh, gosh. >> oh, my gosh. >> that's got to be all the
9:37am
eagles. >> every eagle in the aleutian islands in alaska where she is happened to be here nears the dock. she said somebody left some herring on one of the pallets and those aren't the only ones hanging around. look when she pans over. >> wow. >> you only ever see one, maybe two of them together at a time. there's like two dozen here. >> a whole family. >> you can see these two eagles together. she believes these are a mom and dad because there is a junior eaglette hanging around close by which she said was probably born this summer. >> there's the parents. there's their baby over there. >> the greatest thing about bald eg physicals yagles if you look, they look like they're wearing pants. th's my favorite thing. they have britches. >> you think the eagles have a tailor they go to? se they're never long. their feet never show. i think they keep their pants nicely hemmed.
9:38am
a police motorcyclist leads the way until -- >> oh! >> what the -- >> was he attacked? >> we'll reveal what sent the officer flying. >> and what this cat does begs the question. >> why, and how did the cat not die from this? >> let's just say it may only have eight lives left. see why, on "right this minute." [ female announcer ] for those who love sweets, your season is here. let's just call it the baking time of year. you need special ingredients. you need the staples. that's a given. you need safeway sugar for just $1.97. and that magic thing that makes everyone want another -- only $2.99 for challenge butter. and when hands get messy, quite surely they'll say, "yum! wow! yay! what a sweeter holiday." safeway. ingredients for life.

9:41am
this presidential convoy, hit the speed bump and goes flying. watch this again. >> oh, my good ness. >> good thing the guy who was second in line noticed what he hit and told everybody to slow down. >> people come to his aid. he gets up. his white shirt completely covered with dirt, with marks from the road. >> how embarrassing for him, though. he's the leader of the pack and thepresident's right behind, right. and then -- oops. >> it honestly looks like the speed bump is spring loaded. >> he seems a little disoriented, little freaked out but he's moving. i think ultimately he was okay. just his pride a little scraped up. >> it's time for another edition of gayle's animal round up. this one starts in russia and i think maybe this cat wants to move to washington state where they just legalized something. >> oh! >> this cat is sucking down the
9:42am
exhaust from some kind of jeep or military vehicle. >> the cat is huffing it seems. >> uh-huh. >> why and how did the cat not die from that? >> why? >> i think this cat might be an addict. >> you think? >> they do have nine lives. she wanted to put herself out for a long cat nap. >> evidently. >> this will make you feel better than that would. this is at the exotic experience in florida. that is dozer the dog and the kangaroo is love bug. watch what happens. >> oh. >> they're making out. >> yeah. that's love. that's interspecies love. >> apparently, love bug loves to touch everything and watch how she stops touching dozer and dozer is like, hey, hey, come on, get back at it. you know, couple says will you rub my feet and rub them for like two seconds and the other one says is that it? that's probably what dozer was feeling like. >> oh. >> we can all learn something from this dog and this kangaroo.
